Empowering circular future
Hitting sustainability targets
The outlook for the sustainability agenda is complex. Between EU directives and legislative changes, brand pledges and targets, the ambitions and promises are vast.
ICIS brings much needed transparency on sustainability by providing data and insight on the factors driving prices of recycled plastics, as well as carbon footprint data. With supply of recycled raw material under pressure, we work with key market players to provide independent and trusted insights on availability of products in the light of growing demand.
By bringing clarity to recycled plastics markets and carbon footprint data, we help companies spot opportunities for collaboration, innovation and adoption of new technologies. Our market intelligence empowers companies so they can make forward-looking decisions that help them manage and deliver on their sustainability goals with confidence.
Reframing the future
At ICIS, we have spent the last four decades helping the petrochemical, energy and fertilizer markets make decisions that matter. Driving actions that optimise profit, resources and operational effectiveness with sustainability in mind. Our intelligence connects key players, enables innovation and helps you see what is coming, so you know where to invest and where to transform. There are many reasons why we are the most trusted source of independent commodity intelligence services. But mostly, it’s our commitment to connecting global markets to optimise the world’s resources, now and in the future.
We are ICIS and we are reframing the future.
